Discovering How to Stand in the Gap




In a 2006 “Signs of the Times” article printed on a foreign website, Oorsprong van artikel writes of Christianity in America: “Mainline Christianity continues to flourish abroad and languish in the U.S. … Now whether you agree or not, something has radically changed in the eyes of our brothers and sisters around the world. They see the American Church at best adrift, and at worst, apostate.” (Emphasis added.)  As in the days of the prophets, there are many even in the Church who do not follow His word.  In this anthology I’ve titled Discovering How to Stand in the Gap, I’ve combined several issues of my newsletter where I used the story of how people have answered the call recorded in Ezekiel 22:30 to “Stand in the Gap.”

I hope you’ll consider using this with a High School or College group study and conversation. Or, perhaps some pastors could be moved by God in developing a sermon for a church service.

Many individual US congregations within mainline denominations, be it Episcopalians, Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians or Southern Baptists, there is a widespread sense that this is a growing problem. In whatever denomination you look, individual congregations are leaving because they sense that the Ecclesiastical Leadership is moving away from the Bible.

 

Amazing Grace

 

Consider the story of William Wilberforce, who fought for over 20 years in the British Parliament to abolish the slave trade. He also sought to lead a movement that he referred to as “the reformation of manners” because of the levels of debauchery and selfishness that British society had sunk. In our day, God is looking for men and women of faith to stand in the gap, just as Wilberforce did, and reverse this senseless decent into the dust heap of history.

In this At the Movies anthology, I believe you’ll be inspired by the themes I’ve selected to illustrate and discuss issues of faith that consume a culture which is becoming increasingly hostile to God’s word.  CLICK HERE and I’ll give you access to a sample chapter using the movie Dunkirk.
